FEARS that Huddersfield Giants' Australian ace Julian Bailey could miss the club's next Super League game have been kicked into touch.
The 25-year-old centre was put on report for an alleged high tackle against Hull by referee Russell Smith, whose handling of Friday's McAlpine clash, which Huddersfield lost 20-0, was highly controversial.
The Giants, however, have heard nothing from the Rugby League, who have a special panel to decide whether incidents put on report should go before disciplinary chiefs.
And as far as the McAlpine club are concerned, no news is good news.
"We didn't think it was that bad a tackle at the time, and it seems that view has been borne out by the RFL," says football manager Stuart Sheard.
Bailey, who has missed just one of the Giants' 13 matches this year, is now free to face London Broncos in the capital on Sunday week, May 23.
Head coach Jon Sharp is confident both Brandon Costin and Paul Reilly, who suffered hamstring and jaw injuries respectively against Hull, will also be available for the trip to Griffin Park, the home of Brentford Football Club.
Fifth-placed Huddersfield will be desperate to bounce back from only their second defeat in nine League games.
London are third-bottom after losing 30-12 to Salford.
